It has taken well over a decade, nine albums, multiple fan petitions and even a support group for Australian fans upset at not having a tour, to finally get one of the greatest live bands in the history of heavy music to Australia. Renowned for legendary performances, ludicrous levels of skill as musicians and a seemingly endless catalogue of killer songs, Avatar are finally making their way to Australia.

Avatar have long been your favourite metal band’s favourite metal band. From Iron Maiden inviting them on tour; to Vinnie Paul claiming Dimebag would have been jealous of their riffs; to mega star cameos on their albums, including Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale on the new one, Avatar have never lacked for adoration from their peers. When Matt Heafy of Trivium had to skip a few shows on their tour for the birth of his twins his choice to fill in for him was Avatar’s Johannes Eckstrom. The side of stage at every one of their US and Euro festival appearances always features a packed gallery of the who is who of rock luminaries riveted by and gaping the pure joy and spectacle.

Avatar have amassed over one hundred million plays on Spotify and an incredible one hundred and sixty three million views on their YouTube channel with the songs Bloody Angel, Hail The Apocalypse, Torn Apart, The Eagle Has Landed and many more. Recent single The Dirt I’m Buried In, currently on three point two Million views, reached a million views in only two days.

With their stunning new album, Dance Devil Dance debuting on The Australian iTunes Charts at number one in Metal, number one in Rock and number six for All Albums, Australia will no longer be denied!
